Youth in our Lehigh Valley Shelter and PATHS group home came together this holiday season to bake cookies for residents at Lutheran Manor, a senior living community in Bethlehem.  The youth learned to make cookies with counselors Kayla Schubert and Alycha Boehm, then delivered them and sang Christmas Carols with Lutheran Manor residents.

Counselor Kayla Schubert says, “We are teaching the importance of giving back to our youth, while baking way over 300 cookies in one night!”
